< Grape cultivation >
Chardonnay is a 40-year-old average. For its high-quality raw material wines [adoption] practice. Using the biodynamic calendar is depending on situation flexibly. By all means healthy grapes grown for the adoption itself is not desired. Anselm is no believer in representation of the adoption. In the field of Anselm winter depending on the soil, such as wheat weed 生yasa is has. Feeling full of life if you go into the field to direct the upland soil, you can realize is alive with the fluffy feel like stepping on the long shaggy rugs. And Boney as the eye has a 0.7 ha vineyard, have produced small quantities of wine from Grand Cru Pinot Noir.
< Wine brewing:
Primary fermentation using barrels of 228 L and 400 L. The ratio 10% new oak barrels. Barrel material to avoid bias five barrel makers together three types of oak wood from barrels of 5, we built a barrel. Suit 4 barrel wood barrels 400 L. Natural yeast to ferment into the cellar of their native culture the yeast manufacturer in Germany, used. After brewing, racking, without filtration to next year until may barrel maturation. Divide and further barrels of aging wine taste at this point, turning in the bottle. No malolactic fermentation.
[Sub stance Substance] is like using Sherry in its own a Solera system is formed. From Otaru's normal harvest next year, along with the Lees moved to 4000 L in large wooden barrels, where 4300 L stainless steel tank, remove the lees in the following years. Moved from the cask, for each year, bottling 22% of the total from the 4300 L stainless steel tanks to the further decline of barrels from Otaru peogap is called Solera system. In this Solera offers wine from the harvest in 1984.
Using a variety of barrels, due to complex multiplication of the cuvée, that say only unique flavors.The aim is to erase the vintage grapes ripen in the nonvintage climatic conditions to compensate for is not.
"Emerge revise terroir, vintage characteristics disappeared after. "That is based on the philosophy.

Anselm's ideas were, "from adoption'。 He works on the adoption in 1996 and since 2001, has been trying to find their way. He"Said the adoption and ECOCERT are tired. Science is progressing. There is a new discovery. Farmers live on the land than the theories of Rudolf Steiner, who have the wisdom of the vineyard and work. 」He said.
Cerros is not a dogmatist. Why not? While repeatedly asking that continues to evolve."For example, when the new moon become active yeast activity. The rough sea when the cyclone also tanks and barrels of wine at home. Bottling of high pressure when the wine is stable. It's to take advantage of such wisdom. 」。 Maria Tung biodynamic producers rely on farming Handbook and calendar, the calendar is different from using it. It keeps changing. It is of Cerros is that it never stops evolving.
